Ankeny High School Reviews
I have been going to ankeny since 8th grade. I’m an incoming senior for the 2018-2019 school year, to be honest, I wouldn’t chose to graduate anywhere else. I moved around a lot growing up and now that I’ve consistently been in a district, it has become my home. On the contrary to my above opinion, ankeny has its tough points. I’ve done some rebellious things I shouldn’t have done and as I continue on and better myself, not only the students but some staff as well seem to have me marked to their judgement for my eternity at the school. Knowing half of the people I see don’t believe in me can hurt sometimes. Reputations are hard to reverse in ankeny. In conclusion I see going to ankeny worth some of the struggles I faced because in comparison to other school districts, ankeny is very accepting and has good nature as well as strong academics.
Ankeny High is an amazing school district, and the faculty is great. Ankeny has lots of opportunities to get involved and take college level classes during high school. They also work closely with DMACC which is the community college down the street and are able to take some class directly at the college. The brand new school has a great layout. The extracurricular activities is one of the special things about this school, it allows students to build friendships and compete with other schools. I enjoyed my time at the school and would recommended it to anyone.
I had a great experience at Ankeny High School. My class, 2013-2014, was the first class after the schools split in two. It was a tough transition but it turned out to be for the best. There were more opportunities to be involved in activities and the classes were smaller. I did have to make new friends because many of my friends went to the new school, but that also turned out to be a good thing.
